First Cards Of December

I managed to make up some cards yesterday.  One small batch of cards and a gift box from craftsUprintsheets that I’d cut out the previous night.  And the second batch were Christmas cards from Hunkydory die-cut toppers and decoupage.

Cards and More:

Creations from CUP downloads.

  1. Light Blue Shabby Chic Toile Money – Gift voucher Envelop by Jean King (A quick an easy to make envelope to give the gift of money or a voucher.  No intricate cutting at all.)
  2. Original watercolour Anemone quick card 5 by Pamela West (This quick card only requires straight edge cutting and a score line to put it together.)
  3. Blackberries and Apple Blossom 2 watercolour paintings by Pamela West (One of two toppers on a sheet that only require straight edged cutting.  I simply matted it onto a black mat of card before sticking it to the card front.)
  4. Blackberries and Apple Blossom 2 watercolour paintings by Pamela West (One of two toppers on a sheet that only require straight edged cutting.  I simply matted it onto a black mat of card before sticking it to the card front.)
  5. Over the edge tear drop with lilac clematis and butterflies by Pamela West (The card itself isn’t difficult to cut out.  The butterflies require a bit more intricate cutting, but they could be missed off if a person finds them too difficult.  Using Pinflair Foto glue means that the the front can be attached to the other piece without worrying about getting it right first time as the glue allows for “slippage” to ease the two parts together.)

  1. Pink Snowman Money Wallet Card by Karen MacKellar (Nothing difficult in making this card, just print, cut, score and fold, and you have your money wallet.  Or you can use it for a voucher.  I put strips of double sided tape to hold down each side.)
  2. Shimmer cards 32 by Astrid Spijkers (This basic card front is just print and cut but you can decorate however you like.  I used fancy peel-offs on this particular card.  so even though it looks quite fancy, there’s nothing difficult about making this card.)
  3. Shimmer cards 11 by Astrid Spijkers (This is also a basic card front that’s just print and cut.  Just stuck onto an A5 card front.  I put double sided sticky Christmas shapes on this card and then used glitter on top to decorate this card as a Christmas card, but like the previous item it could be decorated however you want, or even cut out the oval to use as a frame for a little photograph.)
  4. Stars 7e by Karen Adair (This was a simple background pattern which I used to make a box and gift card for this item, although it could just as easily be used as a background as intended.  I just scored, cut and folded and stuck together with template tape.  I used peeloffs stuck to white card and trimmed as the decoration for the box and card, but they could have been left as they were or decorated with a simple paper flower or whatever you want.)

  1. Wow Gwynneth, you have been really busy. I love Pamela West pictures – I have a cd of her artwork. I can’t wait until I can play with my Cameo so that I can print and cut too!

  2. Thank you so much for your lovely comment Catherine. I love Pamela West’s paintings as well – though that’s probably obvious from the number I’ve bought as card designs – and I’ve got a couple more I haven’t made up yet. Plus, of course, the handful I’ve bought and made up in the past.
